Their fluid, upward motion seems to invite us to draw them, yet they can be surprisingly difficult to capture. In this workshop we will look at how to bring trees to life on the page, using some of the great masters as inspiration. How does Bonnard use shorthand and texture to define individual species of tree in just pencil? How does Giacometti use energy and line to give each tree a sense of space and character? Depending on the weather, one day will be outside drawing from life and the second day will be in the studio.
*This class will take place at SGS College, the door next to our main entrance at the RWA
